RUBBER paint...

Hello, i'm just about to finish my anchor locker (i've taken lots of photos during construction and will post a build thread) and i was going to line the inside with rubber mat to protect it from bouncing anchors / chains etc. Does anbody know of a thick rubber paint that could be applied instead?

thanks, JB

Hi.

I've been looking at a way of re-lining my locker lately as its currently done with old rubber car mats.
In the end I decided to leave them in there as they are doing the job, the only thing I nearly did was to buy in some sheet rubber/neoprene and fit it in properly with some low tack glue.

I don't know that I'd be happy about putting something on the inside of the hull that would take so much effort to remove, especially at the bow where its concievable that collision damage may need to be repaired.

I've used some Rubber based paint in the past for something work related.
Although its obviously thicker than normal paint the stuff we used was still only 0.5 - 1mm thick and required a very long curing time after initial drying before another layer could be added. Adding another coat on top of the dry first coat but before curing just re-wetted the first coat and allowed it to run badly. So it would take weeks to build up a decent layer thickness.

Sorry thats no help, I'd also like to know if there is a better way of doing it.

Thats not funny, its inspired, and in the true spirit of using what you have to hand.

thanks nasher,

i would only paint the inside of the locker, wich is then screwed the the deck so the would be no rubber paint on the actual boat. However it seems that the stuff you used for work would be a real paint to build up a nice covering. I guess i'm off to halfords to buy some cheap rubber mats. Thanks for your comment anyway....

There is one ideal solution but as Nasher says if you need to do any repairs you will have serious problems. The only thing I can think of that would be thick enough is one of the spray on coatings used to line pick up truck beds. It is very tough and flexible and a good thickness. It has to be applied using special equipment - they come out to you.

Rubber mats are the preffered solution though - got mine for 99p each in Tesco!!!
